Default Jaguar 8217 ACE R/C radio questions

Hey guys, my brother bought a DT10 while over in Iraq. He brought it home and decided to give it to my son (12). I being a motorcycle road racer and mechanic, had to take things apart and see how things worked. I found the plastic clutch disc to have some build up on it so I smoothened it out and adjusted the friction metal plates. That seemed to really help the car out. I also adjusted the steering arm on the servo as it turned more the the right then the left. To be honest though neither my brother or myself knew or knows the first thing about RC cars. I mean I can take things apart and fix anything. However, I don't know what the maintenance schedules are on the motors, performance parts for the motors, suspension schedule maintenance. I would like to know what all the switches and dials are that are on the radio as well. I mean the other stuff I can somewhat figure out but the radio I'm for sure lost at what they control. So if anyone has one of these and has some info on it I'd appreciate any info you can share. Thanks a lot.

When it comes to R/C cars forget about scheduling maint. an r/c car will let you know when you need to maintain it. What I'm really saying is, there is constant maintenance on an R/C car, so just have fun with it until something breaks.
